"Home entertaining is about creating a sense of welcome, warmth and hospitality for your guests."
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 5, 2009
At Home by Steve Poses: A Caterer’s Guide to Cooking & Entertaining is the newest project of the man who, with a little storefront restaurant, forever changed the way Philadelphians thought about food. Poses’ The Frog Commissary Cookbook is an enduring best seller that was high on many holiday gift lists when it was first published. At Home is that beloved classic with twenty-five years more experience.
“I believe in the essential importance of human connection and want to increase national home entertaining by ten percent,” says Steve Poses. “There’s no better way to make that connection than sharing the warmth of your home and a good meal.”
More than 400 carefully chosen recipes for all occasions, step-by-step guides to planning and process, and memoir-style side notes about life in and out of the kitchen are packed into 496 pages peppered throughout with whimsical illustrations by Pascal Lemaitre, well known for his cartoons in The New Yorker.
A gift of At Home is more than a just a book since every copy comes with a digital key to access At Home Online, a companion website where owners can search the entire contents of the book plus a library of other recipes, download useful worksheets and tools, and engage in an online community. The pairing of a cookbook with a dynamic, exclusive website offering fresh content is a first in the industry and a must for savvy folk who appreciate technology but still love the warmth of a social gathering.
This is a great gift for anyone who loves to cook and entertain and would be perfect for newlyweds or new homeowners who want to practice their party-hosting skills. Steve’s mantra is: More Parties. Better. Easier. A gift of At Home goes a long way towards including everyone in the fun.
